I have quick post for today to play along with the challenge over at Inspired by Stamping.

The Inspired by Stamping Inspiration Challenge #23 has participants gleaning inspiration from this photo:

Participants must use sage green, pink and cream in their project(s).

I really love this photo.  It reminds me of my grandmother; she taught me how to knit :)  I still remember the click of her needles as she sped along.  It's been a long time since I had time to knit anything.  I have a couple of unfinished projects on the go and am now thinking it might be time to drag them out and dust them off; time to create some memories of my clicking needles in the minds of my boys.  It is so great to be able to create a whole  lot of love to wrap them in and keep them warm :)

The last kitting project I finished was a baby blanket for Large-Son.  I will share a picture of it sometime soon.  He still needs it to sleep and hasn't been without it since he was born.  You can definitely tell how well loved it is when you see it.  Makes each hour that it took to make it so worth it!

Now on to the challenge project!  Here is my card; I hope you enjoy...
